While the parting of the red sea and the amazing escape for the people are obviously key to this story the games here also tie in to Miriam’s song. Choose the game best suited for your group and space – the key to the symbols is at the base on this page.
Parachute seas – This simple parachute game is lovely for younger groups. After you’ve established positions around the parachute use it to talk about how the seas move, big waves, small waves, controlled, random etc. Place a wooden board or line of heavy pillows down the middle of the parachute talk about how God’s powerful wind moved the waters so they couldn’t cover that part. have the children walk through the waters – using adults to create walls of waves.
